Yeah, but I don't consider a ´´no kill`` code to be a moral high-ground, if it was im sure there'd be a hell of a lot more killing out there. People get into fights all the time, but they very very rarely end up killing each other. I mean, I would have no hesitation of punching someone's lights out if they raised their hand on me, but I wouldn't take their life. I guess this ´´issue`` is just very simple for me. Superman always finds a way and never takes a life.
